Sur la Mer is the thirteenth album released by The Moody Blues, released in 1988. It features the hit single "I Know You're Out There Somewhere", a sequel to their 1986 hit "Your Wildest Dreams". Much of the music on this album would fit in the "synthpop" genre, though it does bear more rock and acoustic influences than its predecessor. Flautist and vocalist Ray Thomas did not appear on this album; although he remained a member of the band at the time during which it was recorded.
